Polish Forced Labour (Zwangsarbeiter/Fremdarbeiter) collection

Article about: by A.J. Zawadzki Hi Stefan, yes, very perceptive of you. Definitely the efforts of a left leaning group. You'll quickly spot the less-than-subtle hammer and scythe imagery on the cover: Atta

    Luckenwalde is the capital of the Teltow-Fläming district in the German state of Brandenburg and is 52 kilometres south of Berlin. During WW2, there was a PoW camp (Stalag III-a) and a work camp for Poles, Italians, French and other nationalities, situated in the Luckenwalde environs.

    I am 99.99999% sure this jacket and patch are a recent marriage but as it was the pretty much the price of a "P" patch by itself, I went ahead and purchased it anyway. The "P" patch is definitely okay so am happy enough with just that. The heavy cotton jacket is fairly crudely stitched together and could be from anywhere and any time, although it does have some age to it. There are no stamps or labels in the jacket—that I have found. I am just going to hang on to it as is until another pops up one day and it becomes a new cleaning rag for garage use

    Made by Leyla (Spielwarenfabrik Christian Friedrich Ley, Roth in Nürnberg). From a little internet research I gather during WWII Leyla made toy figures of Wehrmacht soldiers as well as key figureheads of the Nazi regime. They also produced farm animals and wild-west figures. The company existed under the brand name "Leyla" from 1936 to 1978.
